Lottery Loser

Meet Christina Goodenow. This 38-year-old resident of White City, Ore., bought a lottery ticket worth $1 million.

And it may land her in prison.
You see, police say she bought the ticket with a stolen credit card. Oops.
"I'll be fascinated to see how this shakes out," Lottery spokesman Chuck Baumann said. "In my 12 years with the Oregon Lottery, this is the first time I've encountered something like this."

Police said Goodenow used the credit card of her mother-in-law who died a year ago. They searched her house, found some methamphetamine but not the $33,500 from the first of 20 annual installment payments. Gee, wonder where the money went. So she'll be charged with possession as well.
